Offshore investment is a growing feature of the New Zealand commercial property market. Overseas investors have been particularly active over the past 12 months across a number of high profile transactions.

In 2017, New Zealand ranked highest in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index, which ranks the perceived levels of public sector corruption in 180 countries. It is partly this transparency that makes New Zealand a popular destination for foreign capital.

What other factors are at play, and will these trends continue? 

To explore this, we would like to invite you to a joint RICS and JLL panel discussion where you will have the opportunity to hear from New Zealand property industry leaders about the major trends playing out in the market through 2018. 

The event will be followed by a Q&A, networking and light refreshments.
